Story Hour: Join us every Thursday during the school year @ 10 am for Story Hour. There will be stories, games, crafts, playtime, and snacks!
Paws to Read: In conjunction with the Mayfield Animal Shelter, this special program allows children to read aloud to a therapy dog or cat for 15 minutes. Patient, nonjudgmental pets help reluctant readers gain confidence and comfort with reading. After all, a dog will not correct them or make them feel awkward if they stumble.* Parents will need to fill out and sign a waiver before their child can participate. This program is open to children in grades K-6.
Lego Night: Join us the FIRST Monday of every month @ 5:00! Bring your adult over to the library and build some memories! Children K-6 grade.
Daughter Date Night: Parents and Daughters meet once a month to make a craft. Ages of Daughters 5-12.  First Tuesday of every month @ 5:00.
Angel Correll Community Book Discussion: The Graves County Public Library will host Kentucky author Angela Correll for a Community Book Discussion on the third book in her May Hollow Trilogy. She lives on a farm in Central Kentucky with her husband, Jess, and an assortment of grass-fed cattle, horses, goats, and chickens.
Granted takes readers from Kentucky farm country to old-world Tuscany in the company of Annie and Beulah. Annie is embracing her country roots and racing toward a future with her sustainable farmer fiancé, but wedding plans are complicated by her new job, a mysterious ex-boyfriend, and a narcissistic father. Meanwhile, Beulah is facing a shakeup in the last place she ever thought she would – home. A crisis on May Hollow Road follows a friend’s betrayal, challenging Beulah’s forgiving nature. An unwelcome diet, a new houseguest, and a possible overseas trip will all stretch her spirit – if she lets it.
 
National Library Week Open House: We will be hosting an open house at the end of National Library Week. There will be refreshments, community story times, local authors, DIY flower pot craft, Friends of the Library table, tours of the library, bookmobile, and genealogy, a library scavenger hunt, and a photo board with props. It will be a great time, so don't miss it.
Bingo Night:  Join us for our first Bingo Night. Open to all ages. Play for a chance to win prizes!
Family Movie Night: Join us to watch the inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman. Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to find their compassion and acceptance, Auggie's extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can't blend in when you were born to stand out.  Free Drinks and popcorn will be served.  Children under the age of 10 should be with an adult.  We will also have games to play along with the chance to win a prize.
Friends of the Library Spring Book Sale: The annual Friends Spring Book Sale will be April 20-21 from 9-5 pm. All proceeds go to the Graves County Public Library.
